    Cool idea to have the case in wood. A virtual case.

    @kunashe only had some mAtx cases laying around but needed something bigger and the wood was also laying around

    Uhh Proxmox <3
    Have fun.
    Beautiful software

    @Kimmax its amazing, except for their inbuilt firewall manager which doesn't work at all, so you'll have to use iptables anyway 😅

    @ChibangLW
    Nice :)
    ECC ram right?

    @Linux unfortunately not. Got the board for a bargain and it doesn't support ECC.

    @ChibangLW
    Aight, ryzen som support ECC :)

    @JoshBent right
    The FW is rather new and aimed at LXC anyways
    But who cares, iptables to the rescue

    @Linux I know. For what I do now, I don't need ECC. And I wasn't willed to spend more than I need.

    @ChibangLW
    You need if you are running proxmox
  • 1
    @Linux you absolutely don't _need_ ECC for proxmox, I would heavily recommend it tho
  • 0
    @Linux you don't need it to run some VMs. Maybe you end up with some fucked up data but otherwise for non mission critical data it's just fine.
    Like @Kimmax said it's recommended.

    @Kimmax "need" is maybee wrong word.
    But as you said, it is almost needed ;)

    Wow... This is actually a great idea. I always thought about building a wooden case for my PC. But building one as a server makes much more sense.

    You can actually build and rebuild the case 100% free to your specific needs. And everything on you own! And everything is 100% recyclable ...

    But you should probably not talk about this to someone who is a firefighter 😅

    Really really like that!!! If I had access to tools and wood atm I would start something as well ... Sadly I am unable to craft some stuff on my own atm :(

    @Rohr thanks. Actually it is not that complicated. If don't have a saw at home, just get the rectangular pieces cut in your local hardware store. You can make the cutouts even with a carpet knife.

    I can smell some roasted wood!

    @ChibangLW that is true, but atm I am living in another country. So I don't have my hardware arround me, which is actually even more a handy cap :D

    But I still have some good ideas when I am back :)

    You have the same graphics card in your virtualization server as I have jn my Main PC (also for gaming)... 😢

    But hey.. this "case" looks very nice :)
  • 0
    @cvonderstein if I want to game I spin up a windows vm with GPU pass through and nvidia gamestream.
    My "main" PC is a 2in1 with docking station. ;) so I have to use a VM for demanding tasks.
    Thanks.

    @JFK422 I built the case over a year ago and for the first months I had a dual socket Xeon board with the graphics card. Never experienced critical temps even under benchmarks.
    The fans in the front push quite a bit of air through the case.

    @ChibangLW so youre basically running a terminal machine setup like shops or small offices?
  • 0
    @JoshBent more or less yes.
    My 2in1 acts as a thinclient.
  • 0
    @ChibangLW what's a 2in1 I thought that usually only refers to tablet computers, is that what it means? anyway what pc are you using, hows it called 😊
  • 0
    @JoshBent hehe yeah it is a tablet Computer. Lenovo miix 720
  • 0
    @JoshBent IMO the price is comparable to other 2in1 like the Surface Pro. Plus you get thunderbolt 3.

    @ChibangLW the specs I googled first showed i3 128gb ssd only and 8gb ram, but when I went to the actual page it showed i7 etc. so its indeed fine for the price.
